Disadvantages of the Honda D13B engine

  • This engine is famous for its reliability and unpretentiousness in operation;
  • Do not disassemble the motor without a torque wrench, the thread breaks very easily;
  • Throttle and idle valve contamination are the main causes of floating rpm;
  • The timing belt is designed for about 100,000 km, if you miss a replacement, the valves will bend;
  • On a run of over 150,000 km, rings often already lie down and oil consumption begins.
